Critical Perspectives on Theory, Culture and Politics

Series edited by Chris Weedon, Glenn Jordan, Laurent Milesi, Radhika Mohanram and Chris Norris

Critical Perspectives on Theory, Culture and Politics is a new interdisciplinary series developed in partnership with the Centre for Critical and Cultural Theory based in the School of English, Communication and Philosophy at Cardiff University.

This interdisciplinary series will focus on innovative research produced at the interface between critical theory and cultural studies. In recent years much work in Cultural Studies has increasingly moved away from directly critical-theoretical concerns. One of the aims of this series is to foster a renewed dialogue between Cultural Studies and Critical and Cultural Theory in its rich, multiple dimensions.

This series will contribute to the rise and consolidation of a broader cross-disciplinary reflection on the role and relevance of ‘theory’ in our technological and allegedly ‘post-theoretical’ age. It will take forward Cultural Studies’ commitment to grounded, located and engaged critical analysis and extend and refine conceptual tools in the light of emerging trends. The series will seek to challenge ideas and perspectives both within local and global academic communities and among cultural practitioners, addressing new and developing areas as well as innovative approaches to well established themes and issues in a fast-changing socio-cultural landscape.
